Reducing Your Alcohol Intake
Experts recommend men and women drink no more than fourteen units a week — and that we all have two alcohol-free nights a week.
To cut back, keep a "drink diary", work out a limit and stick to it, choose lower strength drinks and use smaller glasses at home.
Don't feel pressured by friends to drink more, and agree with your partner to cut back on drinking at home.
When Drinking Becomes a Problem
Most people can enjoy the occasional drink without harm, but for some drinking can become a problem and they need to take action.
Reduce the amount you drink if you suffer memory loss or injuries after drinking, and feel guilty or get angry if people comment on it.
You may be addicted if you feel upset if you can't drink, fit your life around it, need to drink more to get the same effect or suffer from withdrawal.
